THIS WEEK'S COVER STORY

EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER:
DISASTER LOOMING AT NEWSMANATEE

Our external back-up system has failed,
our computer is showing signs of failure,
and our anti-virus program no longer
supports our operating system.


Dear friends of NewsManatee:

We are experiencing an impending major crisis. We are already in jeopardy and we seriously need your help immediately.

As you already know, we are a non-profit charity, as defined by the IRS. As such, we do have some supporters, who are identified by the banners on our pages. However, their donations barely support our regular monthly needs.

As it is now, I have to use some of my personal Social Security benefits to augment and help support our website, and I only receive $800 per month, half of which goes to rent and electricity, not to mention other regular expenses, such as food.

Our external back-up system has recently failed, meaning we have no way of making a duplicate of the website or our computer's operating system.

Additionally, our computer is showing signs of failure. Should that happen, NewsManatee will be lost forever; we have no way of re-creating it.

And, as if that's not bad enough, our anti-virus program no longer supports our operating system. We are therefore vulnerable to attack. We absolutely need to change our operating system.

What all of that means is: We do not have the funds to replace the equipment and software mentioned above.

WE NEED YOUR HELP RIGHT AWAY...!!

One of the ways you can help is to donate through our PayPal account. To do that, click on the logo at the upper left of this page.

Once you click on the PayPal logo, just follow instructions. The address you should use is: NewsManatee@aol.com

Or, you can mail a check or money order to:

NewsManatee, Inc.
Post Office Box 10453
Bradenton, Florida 34282-0453

Please make your checks payable to: NewsManatee, Inc.

Your donations are tax deductible, to the extent allowed by law.

Friends, I love doing NewsManatee for our community. At my age (73), I have nothing else to occupy my time and would be devastated if I could not keep informing you of the Crime and Public Safety issues that plague our community.

So, I'm asking you --- PLEASE -- make donations that will allow us to survive. We estimate we will need about $2,500 overall, including tutoring on the new operating system.

Thank you from my heart.
